I have been working at Kuno Creative full-time (More than a year)
The relationships, work hours, benefits and coffee. Kuno has a fun, diverse group of employees that are friendly and welcoming. Kuno has managed to successfully merge analytical and creative people. The culture is, by far, one of the best I've been part of. Kuno's work hours and "work from home" benefits make it a great place to work when you're looking for a good work/life balance as well as offering a comprehensive benefits package. Then there's free coffee... what else is there to say.
Stress, dogs, and work space. Working at a marketing agency can be stressful at times, however, you'll find that at any agency. Management does it's best to help alleviate stress whenever possible. If you're not a fan of dogs then Kuno might not be your cup of tea. At times, it's been reported that there have been up to 4 dogs in the office at once. There are multiple places to work, however, some of the meeting rooms are close to common areas so people have to be conscious of the volume of their activity (there are musical instruments in the office).
Advice to Management
Provide more separation of the common areas from the meeting rooms. Offer a more diverse selection of office animals.
I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kuno Creative (Cleveland, OH) in March 2012.
There was really just two disucssions with CEO and SVP. They went very well and I was invited to participate in a PAID training, that would last one month. I was given numbers for base pay and comp plan. Upon successfully passing the training, an offer letter would be next up.
